Helen Haberman, 42, of 5 Braybourne Drive, Norwalk, was stopped by police when they noticed her swerving over the double yellow centerline on Sauagatuck Avenue. Once they got her to pull over, police said they detected alcohol on her breath. Haberman then failed a field sobriety test. Breathalyzer tests came back .259 and .246, more than three times the legal limit. Haberman was charged with operating under the influence of drugs or alcohol, failure to maintain insurance coverage minimums and failure to drive right.
Bruce Baber, 55, of 51 Valley Forge Road, Weston, also found himself pulled over when his car slid across the double yellow line. He refused a breath test and failed a field sobriety test, according to police. He was charged with failure to drive right and operating a vehicle under the influence of drugs or alcohol.
It wasn't the swerving over the line that first caught the eye of Westport police, though they reported that Kurt Louney, 41, of 64 Wilridge Road, Wilton, did that, too. No, it was that he was driving too slow that raised the first question. He failed a field sobriety test and two breathalyzer readings, .206 and .198, put him at more than twice the legal limit. He was charged with operating under the influence of drugs or alcohol and failure to drive right.
Makilo Williams, 34, of 2102 Davidson Ave., Bronx, N.Y., decided to make an appearance in Westport when he learned a warrant for first-degree failure to appear had been issued for his arrest, according to the Westport police. He turned himself in.
